Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said he did not endorse the Ali Modu Sheriff faction of the party.
Jonathan disclosed this on Tuesday after the meeting he had with Sheriff’s faction in his efforts to resolve the internal crisis within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at his Maitama residence, Abuja.
Jonathan’s media aide, Ikechukwu Eze, after the meeting described the claim as false, clarifying in a statement that the issue of endorsement never came up in the course of the visit, “not at the closed-door meeting with Sheriff nor during the former president’s interview with newsmen.”
Speaking about the meeting, Eze said: “We are solving our problems. There are bound to be differences in politics. It is the way we resolve these differences that makes us human beings and that is what makes us leaders.
“We are not factionalised. We are one. I have met with Sheriff. And I have met with others. I will meet with others, so that we will be able to do what is expected of us as a political party,” he said.
